Site Map for The Telson Spur

DESCRIPTION: One of two pages comprising the itinerary and manifest of The Telson Spur (each with a brief Overview of the vessel), this page lists the contents of all subordinate pages. (The coordinate page, the Site Index, provides a pull-down menu containing an alphabetic index of topics.) A somewhat more detailed analysis of those subordinate pages or "field nodes" which comprise the main Subject Tree of The Telson Spur is available on the Field Nodes page, a list of links to mainly academic resources organized on the theme of necessity vs. contingency in the study of time and evolution. (As this page is a map of the site, so this site is itself a map, a mappa mundi.)

KEYWORDS: epic of evolution; palaetiology; time; evolution; universe; cosmology; cosmogony; earth; life; man; culture; humanities; history; ideas; world-views; myth; religion; philosophy; science; information; research; exploration; discovery; space; bioastronomy; SETI; contact; future; jumplist; links; meta resource; subject index

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S. Eliot
